Hoboken’s Transportation and Parking Director John Morgan is resigning from his position effective Friday, September 1st, according to Mayor Dawn Zimmer.
Morgan’s departure, comes in the midst of several ongoing road projects—not to mention a contentious battle to succeed Mayor Zimmer following her own decision to leave City Hall at the end of her current term.
“I thank Director Morgan for his years of service to Hoboken,” said Mayor Zimmer. “He played a key role in helping our team advance the Washington Street redesign project, Southwest traffic circulation plan, Newark Street safety improvement project, Sinatra Drive shared use path, pay-by-phone parking option, bike share program, upgrades to the Hop shuttle, and many other projects that have improved the safety and quality of life of our community. I wish him continued success as he takes his next steps in his career.”
Ryan Sharp, who has served as Principal Planner in the department for the past six years, will be serving as Acting Director of the Department of Transportation and Parking.
The City of Hoboken reportedly anticipates a revenue stream of over $17.4 million this year from parking enforcement.
